Sydney Sights


St. James' Church Review

Begun in 1819, the colonial Georgian–style St. James' is the oldest surviving church in the City of Sydney, and another fine Francis Greenway design. Now lost among the skyscrapers, the church's tall spire once served as a landmark for ships entering the harbor. Plaques commemorating Australian explorers and administrators cover the interior walls. Free guided tours are given weekdays at 2:30 pm. Lunchtime concerts are presented every Wednesday from late February to late December.
